Yes, but --sendmail-command expects a sendmail(8) compatible interface
(e.g. -oi -t), whereas my imaginary --send-command expects a shell
command into which the various values (%t for To, %s for Subject, %a for
a file containing the patch attachment) are substituted.

As MUAs like thunderbird and mutt do not provide a sendmail-compatible
interface, --sendmail-command is not appropriate for people who (ab)use
their MUA as their only means of relaying mail to a smarthost.
